Where Have You Put Your Trust?

79
Convicted. Chastened. Corrected. I can see clearly now what I have done. I have not placed my trust in God. I have placed my trust in man. I have trusted in myself. I have trusted in people. And I have come out the other end broken, confused, uncertain, and afraid. Where have you put your trust? Surely your trust lies somewhere. But does your trust lie in God, or have you placed your trust in man?
Some people called into ministry believe they need to present a perfect front to the world around them. I do not. I do not believe this, nor would I be honest if I did. For my walk involves stumbling, falling, conviction, chastening, confession, correction. My walk involves repentance, growth, and going forward slowly as I learn to walk with the Lord. I cannot say I have placed my trust in the Lord, for I have not. Certainly, I have placed pieces of my trust in Him at different times. But if the truth be told, I have been highly selective in placing my trust in the Lord.

Today I am excited. But why? How could I be excited to admit to the world at large how I have fallen so short in trusting God? Simple. I am excited because the Lord’s mercy never runs out, and I have an opportunity to go forward now on new footing. Being chastened is not the end of the world. Being chastened is the beginning of a new way of life – if I receive the chastening, repent, and grow forward as the Lord calls.

I know all about living the life that comes with placing my trust in man. I know all about placing my trust in myself. I know so very little about placing my trust in God. But from this day forward, I have every intention of learning what life will be like when my trust is placed in God. I have no expectation of doing this perfectly. After all, I am only just now learning to truly walk with the Lord. But I do know this. I want to experience life on the other side of misplaced trust.

How about you? Will you place your trust in God today? Will you repent for the times you have placed your trust elsewhere? And will you grow forward with the Lord to the place He is calling?

Isa 31:1“Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because [they are]many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!”
